For those of us at Peerspace, its our goal to make every unique commercial space a potential source of inspiration and creativity for businesses and professionals across the world.

About Peerspace

Peerspace is an online marketplace that connects professionals and businesses to unique spaces. Our goal since launching in 2014 has been to make finding and booking space an easy and transparent process.

We believe that innovation occurs at the intersection of smart people and the spaces that inspire them. This happens every day when Peerspace hosts share their underutilized spaces with creative people planning memorable experiences. Film and photo shoots, offsite meetings, product launches, and charity events are just a few of the many activities that take place on the platform. Peerspace is headquartered in San Francisco with offices in Los Angeles and New York. Our investors include Foundation Capital (Netflix, LendingClub, AdRoll)  and Structure Capital (Uber, Shyp).
